A bit about me
I’m an art director with 20 years of TV, print, web, radio, outdoor and web/digital/social experience. As a ‘90’s Creative Circus guy, I grew up in traditional branding and advertising. This has helped today with an ever-increasing amount of web and social work over the past few years. I am skilled at getting to the root truth of a brand and creating a connection with people. I also have experience leading a team of graphic designers—and a Den of Cub Scouts.
I am based in the Twin Cities. For more information or to see my work history, please visit my LinkedIn page at: www.linkedin.com/in/shavor
